Get to know Jalen and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Jalen is a quiet and shy boy who has struggled quite a bit in school. He was diagnosed with ADD and ODD and I believe that this severly hindered his learning. Jalen is the oldest of two children; his baby sister is six. I want to see my son excel in life and be hope for other children that has dealt with or dealing with the same situaiton. I currently leave for work at 6:30 am and usually arrive home around 6:00 pm, therefore weekends would be the best time for us to do tutoring.

What are your greatest hopes for your student?
My greatest hope is to see him excel in school and in life. I would like to see him help other children excel as well.

What are you most grateful for?
life and love

Please describe specifically what your student needs help with.
My son had past behavior issues and this caused him to fall behind in learning in all subjects. He has since changed his life and desires to succeed in school but he is so far behind. He was retained in the the 7th and 8th grade and he will be enrolling in an online credit recovery program in order to be promoted next school term, which will be a math and history class. I have also noticed that he isn't as strong of a reader as he will need to be.

Loving eachother

What is the student's favorite book?
The Bible

What does the student want to 'learn to be' when they grow up?
